bestseller by Irina Sztukowski
As I promised to my art followers, I continue to analyse the art sales and place a few bestsellers of the month on my blog. January and February sales report was placed a week ago, and if you are interested it can be found here ( Art That Sells post) 

Now it is time to talk about bestsellers of the month for March and April. To my surprise there were plenty of abstract paintings sold those months. The one above, Dancing Watercolor, was the bestselling abstract on my RedBubble website.

My main website www.artirina.com  was selling abstract art like crazy as well. 
Here are just a few of them:

blue painting decor bestseller
I am so happy that Art Collectors appreciate the abstract art for decorating their houses. I was also pleased that the abstract bestselling watercolor found a good home in the form of pillows. 

Here is one of the bestsellers:

Yet the portraits were not left behind. When I researched the bestselling art of those months, I realized, that quite a few portraits were purchased by art collectors.

Here are is one, for example, from the RedBubble Gallery:

And needless to say, I was not surprised at all that the same website sold again The Girl And The Ocean famous watercolor bestseller of mine 🙂

Another portrait in the seascape setting was sold by my ImageKind Gallery:

And another, this time silly portrait of Chameleon was purchased by the Art Collector from Williston, North Dakota. This cute curious animal became such a bestseller in the last few years:

So, concluding that most of the sales were abstract and portraits bestsellers, I also want to add that Italian theme, e.g. Italian landscapes and even digital artworks were also quite popular those months.
For example, Siena Italy painting hits the sales records again:

As well as my bestselling photograph of Venice which I touched with the digital brush, was looking so nice in the new frame selected by the Art Collector from Orlando, Florida:

Art That Sells. Bestsellers Of The Month

My followers often ask me which paintings ( e.g what format or what themes) are selling the best. They are also interested if I have mostly sold art locally or internationally. 

To explain all of that I decided to share just a few sales of the first months of this year. I will try to analyse what art is preferred by the local public; and, what art mostly goes to international art collectors. Though, it is quite random. For example, the Iris painting above was sold quite a bit, and geography of the sales is from Florida to California in the US, to Abu Dabi (Arab Emirats) the art collector who bought this artwork of Iris on the stretched canvas this February for example.

Another International Art Collector purchased this bestselling artwork of Inspiration Point, Orinda CA in January of this year:

I am glad that our local beauty is now exposed in the house of Auckland city in New Zealand!

Although, the local Art Collectors of mine, specifically from California ( towns: West Hills, Sunnyvalle, and Dana Point) made me very happy purchasing the following bestselling watercolors:

Siena, Italy watercolor painting

Poppy Field – Elongated Format Painting

Red Poppy Field – decorative landscape painting. 

Most of my customers were purchasing landscape paintings from my Landscape Gallery. However, some still life bestselling paintings were not left behind.
For example my famous Blueberry artwork that became last year bestseller Number One in many departments such Licensing Art, Art Collections, Jam Labels illustrations and more, found its home this time in Nashville, TN:

And another bestselling still life of mine, Two Pears, went to a new home in Goodyear, AZ:

The Art Collector purchased this artwork on the stretched canvas. And, coincidentally, the original was also painted on watercolor canvas as well. I am glad the realistic approach and the Old Masters style is appreciated by my customers.

I am also so happy that the floral compositions became bestselling artworks in those two months. 
For example a simple bouquet of Ranunculus flowers was sold to the customer from Renton, state of Washington:

Three Roses Bouquet watercolor was appreciated by the Art Collector from Lubbock, Texas and became bestseller in January:

And another floral painting bestseller, one of my favorite by the way, the Rose Painting, was sold to the Art Collector from West Palm Beach, Florida:

But because I sell art not only from my website www.artirina.com but through some other venues, such for example ImageKind or RedBubble; sometimes I don’t even know what bestselling art went to what customer. But I am still happy that artworks of mine find a good home. At least I know what art sells there the best.
RedBubble for example established a super new bestseller, the Ruby Slippers. Just in the last few months it was sold more than several dozens of times:

And ImageKind really started selling lots of bicycles. These few are my favorite bestsellers for example:

So speaking of the art that sells I guess the answer is that any artwork can become bestselling when the artist works hard and puts it out to the world. The World will appreciate it, and the art collectors will find you.  I am certainly grateful that my customers do 🙂

It is becoming a great tradition to post some pictures from my customers with artworks framed in their environment. 

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day and I am very happy to thank all my art collectors who not only purchased my art, but sent me photos of the framed art pieces. 

Here are just a few of them from this wonderful and productive year.

One of my great customers from Albuquerque, New Mexico ordered this commission painting of Ranunculus Flowers for her mom:

Art collector and long time customer of mine from Alamo, California, framed this humorous painting Bee Happy for her friend. She also had one of my Fall paintings Still Life With Pumpkin on a wall renting it for last year Thanksgiving dinner:

My dear art collector from Floral Park, New York, framed this White Jasmine painting in a cute intricate silver frame that gave a great feeling of continuation of the Silver-like mellow background of the painting:

I love how my art collector from American Canyon, California, placed painting of A Fashion Girl with white background into a light mat but separated it with complimenting color blue trim:

One of my new customers from Poca City, Oklahoma, chose exclusively colorful and cheerful mats for my Roses In The Blue Vase painting:

New customer from Livingston, Alabama, chose my first two paintings of Seashells Collection for her living room:

Many thanks to the winner-customer of this year from Brentwood, California, for purchasing many large paintings for his private collection: 
Tulips
I am glad that they all found a great wall to hang on and now they are bringing the joy, the beauty, and their stories to a nice family and its guests. 
Lemon Apricot Tulips Garden
As I have my paintings sold in the form of prints on Fine Art America, most of the times I have no communication with the customers. Yet one great customer from Malaysia contacted me through FAA, purchased the prints, had them framed, and sent  me a lovely pictures of the artworks ready to be hung on the wall of the new house:
Golden Gate Bridge California
As I pointed out at the beginning, it was productive year. It was great to paint commission pieces as well as the artworks of my choice. Also, I had a chance and honor to participate in Parkinson Cure Gala and donated two paintings. One of them settled at the house of an art collector from Vancouver, WA: 
Onion Peas Bellpepper Jalapegnos

Last weekend I was talking to a potential customer who was specifically looking for an odd shape painting. I showed pretty much all my paintings, but they were all not odd, they were squared…
Then, I started putting some thoughts into the request and it occurred to me, that it is quite easy to make pretty much any shape with the square/rectangular painting as long as composition allows.
Then I started playing with the paintings images that I have and PhotoShop in order to create ovals. And I was surprised how pictures transformed. For me personally, they started looking a little rustic, antique, and charming.  
Here are just a few as an example.
Florals look lovely in the oval shapes, aren’t they?
